    So happy that I found Lynne in my search for a seamstress to alter my wedding dress. Her prices are very reasonable and I had no reservations about trusting her with my dress (unlike some other places I received quotes from). My dress turned out beautiful and I couldn’t have been happier.

    Lynne is so passionate about her work. I was recommend to her by a friend, and as soon as I spoke to her on the phone, I knew she was the seamstress for me. She suggested alterations for me that I didn't even know I needed. My dress was essentially 2 pieces, with the skirt piece ... View more being completely separate than the dress itself. Lynne had to bring the top of the dress in about 2 dress sizes which was difficult because of all the detailed lace. She also hand made me a custom veil, and had to make some significant alterations on the skirt piece. All this work for a much much more affordable price then all the other bridal stores seamstresses has quoted. I would 1000% recommend Lynne to anyone. I loved my dress, and it fit perfectly thanks to her!
